▪In 2010 Dulcinea Media surveyed 300 middle school and high school students in New York. 3
A Majority of Students... • don’t know how to form a sound search query; • don’t have a strategy for dealing with poor results; • can’t articulate how they know content is credible; • don’t check the author or date of an article.
Students’ Primary “Strategy” ... wildly firing random terms into a search box, and hoping they’ll get lucky.
Beyond Hope? ▪ Those without access to web research training show up at college “beyond hope”….with an “ingrained coping behaviour”… “they have learned to ‘get by’ with Google.” -- University College London
▪ Not one of the 600 college students surveyed “could give an adequate conceptual definition of how Google returns results….the word ‘magic’ came up a lot.” 5 --ERIAL study (Illinois 2010)
Not a library class ▪ “[L]leaving information literacy to librarians alone suggests a failure to understand the scope of the problem.” -- Geoffrey Nunberg
